 DETROIT (AP) -- Justin Abdelkader's power-play goal 24 seconds into overtime lifted the Detroit Red Wings to a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday. The teams reignited their old Western Conference rivalry, accumulating 36 penalty minutes in a third period that included multiple skirmishes on the ice.
The Red Wings had a man advantage for the final 1:21 of regulation and the opening moments of overtime. The penalty carried over to the extra session, when Abdelkader knocked in a rebound of a shot from Marek Zidlicky past Jake Allen for the game-winner. It was just the second power-play goal the Blues have allowed in 25 chances over the past seven games. The Red Wings' Erik Cole tied the game at 1-1 just 24 seconds into the third period. Alexander Steen started the scoring for the Blues with a power-play goal at 9:38 of the second period.
